    Yeah, the aroma is still funky on a sample swirled around in a glass. It's hard to describe,
    but the aroma is definitely not the tasty simcoe/amarillo hops smell I was hoping for. I'm just
    going to gi...

    Your OG and FG sound good to me. Does it still taste funky? I noticed that you said your funky,
    gunky sample was pulled immediately after pitching yeast; this would be a poor time to give any
    kind of ...

    I can't understand why you would sanitize with starsan and then use a no-rinse sanitizer (which
    one? one step?). It should have already been sanitized with the starsan - no need for a
    no-rinse sanitiz...

    errr, yeah that looks like some really healthy yeast. i saw the first one, thought it was the
    'before' picture and was waiting to see the infection. but no, your beer appears to have a
    yeast infection...

    Looks good to me. What stage in the fermentation process did you taste?It was 6 days into ferm.
    I need to RDWHHB and see if this one turns out OK.

    There is nothing about those pictures that would indicate an infection. Completely normal for
    many strains of yeast, including wy1056. Moreover, the funky taste you are getting is most
    likely from sus...

    Looks like krauzen that hasn't fallen yet to me. Don't dump it! let it ride out and see how it
    is. You could be just tasting all of the yeast that may still be in suspension.I'm planning on
    letting it...

    I've had two batches in a row now that have become infected. :( Haven't had this problem before
    these two.For the first batch, I blamed some possibly poorly harvested yeast (it was my first
    time tryin...

    How many sparge additions? Did you stir the mash after each addition and then vorlauf again?I
    did one sparge. And yes, did stir and vorlauf.

    Did you measure the gravity of the first runnings? And what was your water to grain ratio on
    the mash?No I did not measure the gravity of the first runnings. Haven't been in the habit of
    doing that, b...
